Els Hattink, painter and photographer
As the local elections are approaching, any occasion is good for candidates to be seen in public. In the margin of an exhibiton of the Kunstkring (Art cercle) in Strombeek/Grimbergen (about 15 km from Brussels) politicians of different colors from different parties are present in the same bar and are not, if you judge by these photos, all that much interested in the artistic event.
I was there because of my friend Els Hattink. Els is a photographer and painter. She participated in this exhibition with her paintings of which two are shown above together with her self portrait (photos 1 and 2). Do visit her website at http://www.elshattink.net/welcome.html
